FIFA 09Great, Cheap Players in FIFA 09 Ultimate Team

For those of us who don't want to fork out the small fortune required to buy a Ronaldo or Messi, there are players who are cheap because they aren't popular or don't seem good, but are actually world-class players in disguise. Many of you will find your own little gem on your own, but here is a list of 8 of the best players you can buy for a low price.


Player Club/Nationality Position Strengths
Omefabi Martins Newcastle United/Nigerian ST Martins is one of the fastest players on FUT09, with or without training. When fully trained, he is an absolute speed-demon. If his speed isn't his best trait, then his shooting certainly is. I would buy him in a heartbeat if I were just starting out, and I always keep him on the bench of my world-class squad.
John Carew Aston Villa/Norwegian ST Carew is the full package; unbelievably strong, very quick, and an excellent finisher, in the air or on the ground. Carew will shove off most defenders and his pace is a force to be reckoned with, despite his size.
Diego Klimowicz VfL Bochum/Argentinian ST Another striker. Klimowicz is like Carew, but is a bit taller, but just about as strong overall. As you might expect for a 6'3 guy, he is also a formidable threat in the air, but is also a cool finisher on the ground.
Micah Richards Manchester City/English CB Richards is an incredibly pacy center back who uses mostly sheer speed to beat the offensive players. He is also quite strong.
Daniele De Rossi AS Roma/Italian CDM Daniele De Rossi is one of the best CDM's in the game, and a player you cannot leave out of an Italian based team. Strong both defensively and on the ball, De Rossi bolsters your defence and adds a bit of strength to your attack.
Danny Welbeck Manchester United/English ST Welbeck is another useful asset to a team focusing on chemistry and is primarilly English. Welbeck is a very pacy player with excellent finishing. When fully trained to 99, he is a monster.
Gerard Pique Manchester United/English CB Pique is one of the strongest defenders in FUT 09, hands down. He shoves most strikers off the ball and is unreal in the air.
Grafite VfL Wolfsburg/Brazilian ST As you would imagine, this 6'3 Striker is an excellent header of the ball, but also has formidable pace to boot. Grafite is also a good finisher and hard to knock off the ball.
